Re: Search for Soft Return

I suggest not using Regex, but typing ctrl-return directly into your Edit->Find->Find... search field. To get a regular return into the replace field, type opt-return.

Hope this helps!

Re: What font do you use?

I cannot control how readers interpret what I write. *No writer can.* They can pick up zero of the nuance I put in, or all of them plus more I never intended to. Every person's experience is different. Communication is not a strict one-way flow of ideas with no variance or equivocation permitted. T...

Re: What font do you use?

Sorry, Jack, but I suspect we'll have to agree to disagree, here. :) I can't look at my work objectively, by definition, whether I write in Source Code Pro, Times New Roman, or Comic Sans. I write in fonts that give me two cues, one conscious and one not. The conscious cue is a font that makes every...

Re: What is the default binder font in Scrivener for Mac?

Apple doesn't want it used for ANYTHING except UI and put restrictions in place so legitimate developers can't offer it.

Re: Which is better with Scrivener: MacBook Air or 27-inch iMac?

For myself, I have a home setup with an LG Ultrawide (2560 x 1080) which I connect to my Macbook Air 11.6 (5 years old and still going strong.) For writing out in the world (if I ever get to again) I can connect my iPad 6 to my MBA as an external monitor using YAM Display (a lot of people use Duet D...

Re: Using Scrivener with Sidecar or Duet Display

As I'm intrigued by this, I decided to take a look at Brookter's method, and frankly I think it's more what you want, Brett. Here's a screenshot of my efforts:

Re: Open specific project by defaut?

It's not a setting. If you leave a project window open when you quit Scrivener, Scriv will reopen that exact project when you restart. So to change which project opens, just leave your desired project window open when you quit Scrivener.

Re: One straight line in synopsis?

If no one's helping you here, it's likely no one who's looked at the forums lately has experienced the problem. I sure haven't, and I use synopses extensively. Try emailing mac(dot)support(at)literatureandlatte(dot)com for direct support. Be sure to tell them what versions of Scrivener and MacOS you...

Re: Using Scrivener with Sidecar or Duet Display

Another possibility I've occasionally used: In System Preferences->Mission Control, I unchecked "Displays have separate spaces". This lets me expand my main Scriv window across more than one display. BTW, I've moved on from Duet Display, and switched to YAM Display. Because it doesn't try ...

Re: New writing font for monospace lovers...

I just found a new free monospaced crush: Victor Mono, available from FontSquirrel.com, and doubtless many other free font sources. It has the distinct glyphs that I insist on: legible typographic (English) quotes, distinct hyphens/dashes, distinct uprights (one, ell, capital eye), and distinct zero...
